Today's winner is Amy Trammel. Congrats Amy! We hope you love your new treasured piece of jewelry from James Avery Artisan Jewelry! Here's what Amy had to say:
When I was little, my grandfather, affectionately known as Deda, would drive me around for hours looking at all of the large Christmas light displays in the north Bossier area. We'd drive down Benton Road, into Greenacres Place, and back around through old Greenacres, slowing down to look at every single light in every bush, on every tree, and every house. Because I was little (and hence very gullible), my grandfather convinced me that Christmas lights grew on bushes, trees, and houses just like ivy does, but only during the month of December. I believed that even longer than I believed in Santa Claus! I'll never forget the moment I realized he'd been fibbing all those years& I told him, 'Deda, there's no way lights can grow! Someone has to put them there!' He just looked at me and grinned. He grinned the whole ride back home. He passed away in 2003 and not a Christmas goes by that I don't miss those rides to look at the lights. To this day, I always grin when I start to see Christmas lights in the trees and on bushes because I can hear his voice telling me 'Did you know those grow on those bushes and trees?'
Thank you Amy for sharing your memory! If you'd like to share yours or to find out more, click here!
